about

An album created with suggestions and ideas from Matthew Carefully's email list over the past eight months. After a call for submissions, Matthew received ideas, feelings, images, lyrics and sound samples which he then translated into these ten songs. This is a wildly experimental and expressive album.

Track Name: Space Nurses
perched upon my walkway like a billion bars of gold
we crave the missing air outside the glass-filled wall where a million lights are glowing on

and in the sun-split hairs I make you take a rest for the patients I can't hear you need to see
we make a motley pair, oh you and me since we're trying so hard not to leave

if you need relief I'm just a lonely star away
if you need relief I'm just a lonely star away

will you wake up Mr. Lying-There? Mr. Hard-To-Forget all the places you've been to
and in the needle we kept a replacement there
split a handful of the others 'cross another of your puzzles
and when the hatch swings open wide
all of my fear does then collide
trying so hard not to leave

if you need relief I'm just a lonely star away
if you need relief I'm just a lonely star away
Track Name: Poughkeepsie
We took Poughkeepsie like a rain storm
and covered streets with miles of ice
We knew that this was the best our love could get
Wouldn't you mind this time if we weren't quite so shy?

And we were late to make our train home
It took so long, we guessed the road so wrong.
You looked at me and said,
"The further we travel, the further we have to go to get away"
